Spend your frosty Bay Ridge Nights at local hotspots

Welcome back to Bay Ridge Nights, showing you the exits to fun between the Gowanus and the Belt.

Warm up from the polar vortex that was your work week by hearing your favorite tunes at the Greenhouse Cafe [7717 Third Ave., between 77th and 78th streets], courtesy of DJ Suds. The longtime Brooklyn mixmaster starts spinning your requests at 10 pm — and no request is too tough. The veteran crate digger boasts a 220,000 song repertoire, ranging from ’50s classics to contemporary hits.

Things get even hotter on Saturday night at 10 pm, on the dance floor of the Lone Star Bar [8703 Fifth Ave., at the corner of 87th Street]. DJ Anthony will be at the country and western-themed bar, blasting modern Top 40 and dance music hits sure to make you buck like a mechanical bull.

Feel more in the mood for a live band, but can’t decide what you want to hear? Then bring your droogs to the Wicked Monk [9510 Third Ave., between 95th and 96th streets] at 11 pm, where Mashwork Orange will be dishing out its trademark medleys and mash-ups of beloved songs. Be sure to bring your Visine, because you won’t be able to take your eyes off the band’s electrifying live act.

Then on Sunday, soothe your aching hangover at 2 pm with the quiet zither sounds of Dr. Bill Kolb at the Schnitzel Haus [7319 Fifth Ave., between 73rd and 74th streets). The man known as “Doctor Zither” will be serving up the sounds of Bavaria while the Schnitzel Haus’s kitchen provides the taste.
